Have you worked hard to get in shape, but there are some stubborn areas that just won’t seem to respond to any amount of diet or exercise? Do you wish you could eliminate frustrating areas of fat on your body? Liposuction may be right for you! This surgical procedure is a safe and effective method to remove unwanted excess fat from the body. Learn more about liposuction during a consultation with Dr. Joseph Thomas and his team at Dr. Chicago Lipo in Chicago, IL!
What Is Liposuction?
Liposuction is a cosmetic surgical procedure for the removal of stubborn excess fat. It may be able to help you address a treatment area in just one treatment session.
Common treatment areas include:
- Inner or outer thighs
- Love handles
A procedure can be used to treat more than one area at a time. Removing excess and frustrating fat from the body with a surgical procedure can help create more predictable results than with non-surgical alternatives for body contouring.
What Could I Expect from a Procedure?
Liposuction is a surgical procedure performed with a general or local anesthesia. During the procedure, an incision is made so fat may be loosened and removed from the body. There will be downtime associated with the procedure, and our team in Illinois will provide you with a specific recovery plan. A follow-up procedure may be required.
Seeing the best results from a liposuction procedure may require a bit of patience. Swelling or fluid retention need to decrease to adequately reveal the results, and this process may take months. However, as long as you continue to maintain a healthy lifestyle with proper diet and exercise, your results should be permanent.
Am I a Good Candidate?
Liposuction is not a procedure to address obesity, cellulite, or loose skin. It should not be treated as a weight loss procedure, but rather more of a body contouring surgical procedure.
It is important to be in good health, to have realistic goals and expectations for the procedure, and to understand that results will vary. A consultation with our team in Chicago is the best way to understand if this is the right procedure for your goals and body.
